5 Things We Wish Could Be Easier In Malaysia

When finding a parking space takes longer than actually getting to your destination.

1. We wish... cashless payments were more accessible

Imagine going café hopping with friends, only to realise the last café doesn't accept credit cards, and you've used up all your cash.

This is where eWallets could come in handy. In fact, all you would need to carry around is your phone. Not only can you take flatlay shots with it, you can even pay for all your meals with your phone.

The only problem with cashless payments in Malaysia right now is that we have too many eWallets without a unified solution. Plus, not all cafés accept eWallet payments yet. Once we figure that out, paying with your phone will make life in Malaysia way easier!

2. We wish... finding a parking spot wasn't such a hassle

Sometimes, finding a parking spot actually takes longer than driving to your destination.

You've probably experienced going round and round to find a spot—typical Malaysian double, triple, quadruple parking doesn't help, either. 

If there was an app or an easier way to find out which parking spots were still open, it would help save so much time.

3. We wish... visiting the hospital didn't take soooooo long

Falling sick is never convenient, especially if you have to visit the government hospital.

Even if you make an appointment for 10am, chances are you'll only get to see the doctor at 2pm because there are 10 other patients in front of you. That means you'll end up spending the whole day in the hospital.

Of course you can visit a private hospital, but that would be another additional burden on your wallet. Either way, we wish hospital visits in Malaysia were easier to deal with.

4. We wish... the Internet speed would be faster and more stable

One of the worst things that can happen is losing your Internet connection right before you want to send out an important email.

Let's face it, Internet is everything. Without the Internet, you can't work, play, or even navigate to your next location. While free WiFi is becoming more readily available across Malaysia, having high speed and reliable Internet can still be a problem.

Life would be so much easier if there was a telco that could provide fast and stable Internet connection, regardless of the time and place.

5. We wish... owning a smartphone could be easier

It’s no secret that smartphones here in Malaysia are rather expensive.

Some phones even cost as much as (or more than) a fresh graduate’s monthly salary. There are various postpaid plans that offer phone ownership programmes, but these still tend to add up after a long period of time.

If only there was an easier way to get a new smartphone without burning a hole in our wallet.

While there are many things we wish could be easier in Malaysia, getting a new smartphone shouldn't be one of them. With Hotlink Postpaid Flex, all you need is just RM1 to get your hands on either the brand new OPPO A1K or RM199 for the Samsung Galaxy A20!
